Assael Architecture gain planning consent for Clarence Lane, Roehampton

Assael Architecture has secured planning consent on behalf of Hausman Hughes for a £3.6 million residential scheme at Clarence Lane in the heart of Roehampton. The 0.64 acre site is comprised of a dilapidated former private tennis court, which has been vacant for decades and is flanked by a tall brick wall to the north and an overgrown wooded landscape to the south.

The new development will consist of two new buildings ranging from three to four storeys, which will provide a total of 20 new apartments – thirteen one-bedroom, two two-bedroom, three two-bedroom duplexes and two three-bedroom duplexes. The affordable housing element of the scheme constitutes 50% of the total units, offering 10 one-bed apartments within a self-contained block, designed in conjunction with The Metropolitan Housing Trust in accordance with their brief for ‘supported housing for people with learning disabilities.’

It was noted by the Planning Committee as being ‘a scheme of international importance.’ Duncan Greenaway of Assael said: “Assael has extensive experience in realising the full potential of complicated sites in sensitive locations and has fully utilised these skills in the creation of plans for Clarence Lane. The design takes maximum advantage of the green nature of the site and offers a sensitive and sophisticated modern addition to the wider urban fabric. We have been inspired by the setting of the site within the Listed Alton Estate in Roehampton – our scheme pays homage to this iconic housing project.”
